St. Mary Basilica, Bengaluru Reviews - Write a Review
e formation of the city of Bangalore and the formation of St. Mary’s Church are found to be interlinked with the history of Karnataka. During the 17th Century, few Christians came from Ginjee, of Tamil Nadu, found that the land was fertile to sow white rice and began to settle down and built a small village. This village took the name ‘Bili akki palli’ because it is said that the rice they cultivated was white and also because a number of white birds were found in those rice fields. The people in order to practice their religion built a thatched hut and named it as ‘CHAPEL OF KANIKKAI MADHA’.
A holy pilgrimage of mother mary. A powerful and prayerful place. but as it is in center of city cleanliness is essential at the surroundings of the church.
Beautiful church in the midst of all the rush. Reminds us that cultures do co-exist and people do make time out to believe in god, love and peace.
From time nostalgic surviving plagues, then Blakpalli of British India to a Baslica. St Mary's Basilica is historical to Catholics of Bangalore & KGF. Our Lady of Health. Bless all of us.
Nice church. But it's located in heart of the city. So very high traffic to reach. Also nearby markets are there. So always noise will be there... But infrastructure wise church is very awesome.
